Slacktivism (sometimes slactivism or clicktivism) is a portmanteau formed out of the words slacker and activism. The word is usually considered a pejorative term that describes "feel-good" measures, in support of an issue or social cause, that have little or no practical effect other than to make the person doing it feel satisfaction. The acts tend to require minimal personal effort from the slacktivist.

Examples of activities labeled as "slacktivist" include signing internet petitions, the wearing of awareness ribbons or awareness bracelets with political messages, putting a ribbon magnet on a vehicle, writing blogs or statuses about issues on social networking sites, joining a Facebook group, posting issue-oriented YouTube videos, or altering one's personal data or avatar on social network services.[citation needed]

The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS derided slactivism as people "performing simple measures [who] are not truly engaged or devoted to making a change".[1]

I wonder just how many vote, seek input in state and local politics, go to a city council or town hall meeting, participate on a school board committee, ward council or neighborhood association.

I see comments of how fucked everything is but gotta wonder if we the people know what participatory democracy means.

Actually I did a lot when I was in my late teens early 20's.

We rioted on the street (we including I and a few others).

We had 'love ins' Sitting protests, a couple of concerts, one of which is lost to obscurity in some small town nobody recalls the name of... If memory serves it was 'woodchuck' or woodstock or something woody.


Some guy had a dream, and lots of us decided we wanted that dream too. At the same time others were 'going off' on this thing called 'equality' and wanted in on it.

Of course this was all a few decades ago. It seems that our kids and then our grandkids are just to lazy to get up and protest the wrongs in the world. Instead they want to blame my generation for everything wrong in the world, instead of actually doing something to make a difference.

I suspect that my generation was the last generation of freedom loving people.
